Hi everyone :)
I just joined Classroom 2.0 today. My colleagues and I joined today in hopes of finding useful information as we try to embed technology into our teaching. We have been given the opportunity to use an iPod lab in our classroom and are hoping to find others who are on the same journey or already have great ideas for their use.
I am from Wooster, Ohio.
Excited to see what I can find on here.
I'm Gregg Hawks, TV and Video Production teacher at a high school in southwest Virginia. I owned a video production company in North Carolina for 15 years before selling it and finding my true calling in education. I want to share some tutorials, tips, tricks and other resources about digital media production. Visit my blog to find links. http://greggsvideoworld.blogspot.com/
If you have questions or need anything in particular regarding Adobe After Effects, Avid, Photoshop or GIMP contact me via twitter @hawkar56 I'll be glad to help if I can.
Just remember if a picture is worth a thousand words, adding motion and sound makes it worth a million!
Check out my blog for links to different things. Look at GIMP, it is a free program that is very similar to Photoshop. I have posted a link to a step by step tutorial. Also if you have access to computers there are several tutorials for both Windows Movie Maker and iMovie. Have your students build their own news story!
I am Kaushilya (Kaushi), a doctoral candidate at McGill University. My focus is on strategic information processing in academic contexts, which falls within the larger scheme of Educational technology. I am interested in how collaboration could help strategic information processing and how it could be facilitated through technology.
